Weekend ATV Crashes – 9 Year Old Boy Killed

There were two ATV crashes in Cass County over the weekend… with one of them leaving a 9 year old boy dead. The boy was driving the ATV along with a 15-year old passenger Sunday, when he lost control in a water hole and flipped. Resucers were able to move the ATV off the driver but were unable to save his life. The passenger was treated for minor injuries. In the other incident, which happened late Saturday afternoon, a 22-year-old in a pickup truck collided with an ATV on County Road 52 in rural Remer, Minnesota. The ATV’s 14-year old driver suffered serious but non life-threatening injuries. A 13-year old passenger was treated at the scene. The pickup driver from Boy River was arrested for DUI.
